Wheel question

I apologize if this question has been answered before but I am not that familiar with wheels and want to make sure that the ones that I am looking at will fit my car. I have a 2000 Boxster and I am looking to upgrade the stock 17 wheels. The ones I am looking at are from a Panamera and have 255/45/19 tires in the front and 285/40/19 tires in the rear. They have a 5 x 130 bolt pattern so I think that is the same.

Any input anyone may have would be greatly appreciated.

I think you will have trouble with the offsets, particularly given that 19s are a tight fit on the 986 to start with

Yeah, those won’t work most likely. There are some 19”s that work, but you might have to roll your fenders. I run Wheel Dynamics 19”s. They are designed for the 986 and the offset is perfect.

Those may not work but 19s aren't a problem. These 19s fit fine, no spacers, just can go with too big of tires.
